Farm cages should be sited where water quality is good and water velocity is adequate. The size, shape, and position of cages should be selected to favor rapid flushing. Fish can typically be cultured at greater density in small cages than in larger ones. Cages should be oriented with the greatest surface area perpendicular to the prevailing current. Cages should occasionally be fallowed over moved to allow benthic communities to recover.
